At CES today, Bosch introduced a fully automated car valet system that transports a car in a parking garage to a charging station where a robot automatically connects to the car and charges it.

At the charging station, the robot opens the charging flap and inserts the charging cable, removing it once charge is complete.

After charging, the system maneuvers the driverless car to another parking space.

The driverless automated parking system is being tested with Volkswagen subsidiary Cariad at the vehicle-maker’s staff parking garage in Ingolstadt, Germany.

The driverless charging with automated charging system is being tested by Bosch and Cariad at Bosch’s development parking garage in Ludwigsburg.

“Automation plays a key role in the mobility revolution and the transition to electromobility. Our two services – automated valet parking and automated valet charging – make the mobility experience much smoother for users,” said Manuel Maier, vice president of the cross-domain Level 4 parking product area at Bosch. “Making it straightforward to recharge electric vehicles allays people’s misgivings about range, and is essential if electromobility is to find widespread acceptance. With this in mind, Bosch and Cariad can make parking and charging even more efficient and convenient.”

Automated valet parking has been in operation in a parking lot at Stuttgart Airport in Germany for the past year.

At CES, Bosch is also showcasing the technology needed for automated charging.
